Edison is an aspiring foodie and part time health nerd. When he isn’t looking for something to eat, he’s busy trying to sweat it off on a bike or trying to find balance on a yoga mat.
Edison studied Marketing at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He believes good design should be so enjoyable and intuitive that it becomes invisible to the user. His passion for design led him to join the Innovation Factory in 2017.
